This is the only parameter you need to tune as a user of the matchmaker (see Matchmaking basics). By default the 'target waiting time' is set to 1 sec., to facilitate testing (see Notes on testing).

For a productive matchmaker, we recommend a value of 20-30 sec. as a starting point. Depending on the nature of your game (length of game, mobile/static, importance of skill-equivalence) you can adjust this value to meet the desired user experience.

To change the target-waiting-time:

Go to Console and change the target-waiting-time for the respective queue.


Changes will take effect immediately, also on players already in queue.
